But in this CNN forum tonight from the floor, you hear the same d*mn thing you hear a lot on CNN, NBC, ABC, NPR, or on US college campuses in the class room etc, when it comes to Spanish names. "PuERRRRrrrrrto RRRRRIkkkoh," "ManuELLL OrrrrrrTEga" in the midst of an otherwise perfect English sentence. What's up with THAT? What makes these people so special that they have to shove their language like that in most peoples faces; I think it is a certain superiority. I think it is divisive and insulting and rather unecessary. Speak in American English in a full sentence, or fine, in Cuban or Mexican Spanish in a full sentence, fine, but do not mix the two! (Pet Peeve)

You are so right - living in San Antonio we hear that shit all the time. Normal Texas accented English until we get to a Hispanic Name, and then full-on Mexican! Unreal and so fake.
